Neil Thackray

Former CEO & Co-Founder, Agribriefing


In 2010 I co-founded AgriBriefing and led the SBO of the company from Kester Capital to Horizon Capital in 2015. Following significant acquisitions in the US and France, it is now the world’s leading agribusiness media and intelligence company. In 2019, my successor undertook an MBO with Ares Management and I exited the business.

Prior to this, I was CEO of Quantum Business Media where I oversaw the sale of the business in six transactions, delivering 20x multiple of previous year’s EBITDA, exiting majority owner ABN AMRO Private Equity.

I enjoy helping PepTalks members to: grow their businesses both organically and via acquisition and sharing some of the value creation levers we pulled, such as pricing, to drive shareholder returns.
